From Tokyopop:
Rey Yan was an orphan with no home, no skills, and no purpose. But when he comes upon the PaSa sword, a cursed blade made from the bones of the demon king, he suddenly finds himself with the power to be a great hero. The sword's creator is the evil Shiyan, the royal vizier who needs the sword to assist him in releasing his ancestor, the demon king.

I totally agree with what Nightroad said. This series is just awesome. I've read up to vol. 18 and so far am loving it. The characters are good and interesting. The story start off slow in the beginning but kicks off real good later on.

It's fast past and has its fair share of humor.

this series is just plainly awesome. it reminded me a bit of angel sanctuary. sometimes im described as a cold person. but after reading through all those volumes, and then see that rey is betrayed by the person he trusts the most, i just had tears of rage in my eyes.

for all who like shounen manga with a good storyline and romance with comedy, take this one! I dont have that much manga at home, (sigh, I shouldnt download everything but buy more) but I deffinetly want the whole series, and its 29 volumes and ongoing. but trust me, im prepared to lay a hugh amount of money down for this one.

Pervserk: I agree that the first book may be hard to understand but really, it's an awesome manga. I would rank this in my top 10 list and i've read over 200+ mangas.
So give it a try! Stopping without even finishing the first book is just rude smile

Edit: AMAZING! After an eternity, CCS finally release new scans! WOHO!

This was the first manga I ever bought (or downloaded). I saw it in a bookstore and immediately fell in love with the artwork and the RPG esque world. The characters, story, artwork, and action scenes are all top notch. There's also some romance and comedy elements thrown in for good measure. My favorite character is Hyacia followed by Jarhoon and Rey. Tokyopop has released through book 16 so far. I can't recommend it enough, especially if you are a fan of fantasty/RPG style worlds.

It's been a long time since I commented on this series. I just read through book 21. The last few volumes I've noticed a considerable decrease in quality of the artwork, though it's probably been a gradual thing. Rey does not look nearly as cool as he used to and he's acting more and more like your typical shounen main character. Hopefully will get better again but it just seems to be dragging on too long. I see it is 36 volumes and ongoing as I write this. lowering the rating to a 9

This is a great series for lovers of shonen manga, and even though im a huge shojou fan, this was still a good series.
